CHED Expands Digitalization Efforts to Enhance Scholarship Services and Streamline Processes

  • by

In a significant move towards digital transformation, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) announced on Monday its plan to leverage the government’s digitalization initiatives to extend its services, particularly in the area of scholarships. This development comes as a result of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed between CHED and the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) aimed at integrating information and communication technologies (ICT) in the higher education sector.

CHED Chairperson Prospero de Vera III expressed the intention to collaborate with the DICT to facilitate online access to necessary documents and services for students. Under the scholarship digitalization plan, CHED aims to create a dedicated “landing page” that will serve as a centralized platform where students can easily access comprehensive information about available scholarships, including requirements and deadlines—furthermore, CHED plans to transition the scholarship application process to an online format gradually.

“Everything about scholarships in CHED shall be there, so they can read the information, understand the requirements, and be aware of the deadlines. Then, we shall gradually transition the application process online,” stated De Vera.

Apart from streamlining scholarship services, CHED also plans to digitalize the certification process and facilitate the acquisition of necessary records for new graduates seeking employment. By collaborating with the DICT, CHED aims to establish a signing ceremony to integrate participating universities into the digital platform. This will enable students to apply for their transcripts and diplomas online conveniently.

CHED actively participated during the official launch of the administration’s electronic governance Philippines (eGov PH) Super App on June 2. This groundbreaking app, which marks the country’s first foray into e-governance, aims to enhance public access to government services.

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. expressed his vision of making government services more accessible through the one-stop-shop Super App. With the integration of CHED’s assistance, students and graduates can expect a more streamlined and efficient process for accessing scholarships, certifications, and other necessary documents.

The collaboration between CHED and DICT signifies a significant step towards modernizing the higher education sector in the Philippines. Through integrating ICT and digitalization efforts, CHED aims to enhance the overall quality and accessibility of higher education services, ultimately benefiting students and graduates across the nation.
